Cllr Joseph Ejiofor, Leader of Haringey Council, said:

“Housing is our number one priority because we know that a decent, safe home for everyone is one of the most important ways we can build a fairer borough.  Housing isn’t just about bricks and mortar, it is the foundation for living happy, healthy lives.

“We are constantly reviewing how we can best deliver on these responsibilities.  Now more than ever, it is essential that we look for ways to strengthen resident voice, improve accountability, and ensure that we join up services in a way that supports our residents to thrive.

“To this end Cllr Emine Ibrahim and I have asked our staff to begin the process of consulting on bringing Homes for Haringey back in-house as part of Haringey Council.

“Any change would require a formal decision by the Cabinet as well as thorough consultation with residents and staff.  So, nothing will happen immediately.

“We will shortly be writing to tenants, leaseholders and others about the timeline and what will happen next.”
